The Rich Man

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.

Why is it so hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven?

It’s about what makes you rich. To become rich, you have to value the next dollar more than the current one. And as long as your goal is always to have more than you have right now, you’ll never get there. So your life becomes a pursuit of the next dollar, and as a result, you become rich.

At any point, a rich man can give money away. So to continue to accumulate, a rich man must also value his accumulation over the needs of others. As he looks forward to a point when he will be even richer than he is right now, the poor look forward to a time when their basic needs are met.

If the rich man realized that his time on this planet was fleeting and his money would not come with him to the next life, why would he value it over the needs of others? He must not believe in the afterlife. And if it doesn’t, he does’t believe in God, Jesus, or salvation.

Transforming Fear into Hope

1 John 4:18 “Perfect Love Casts Out All Fear”

Fear is focusing on one negative possible reality. Fear is when we perceive a threat in our reality. It is the opposite of hope. Hope is focusing on one positive possible reality. Every fear has an equivalent counter of hope. I fear death but hope for eternal life.

Absolute fear is catastrophic: this is going to kill me. Mitigating fear is diminishing: this probably won’t kill me. There’s hope in it. You acknowledge that there is a chance that it doesn’t kill you. Anxiety is an addiction to fear.

There are always infinite possible hopes and fears in any moment, so the key is to properly mitigate. When you think I’ll definitely die today, you have to remember that the future is uncertain. If the future is uncertain, there are always good and bad possible outcomes. If there are possible good outcomes, thinking of those could transform your previous thought to maybe I won’t die to today. But remember, you have a very, very slim chance of dying today. So the good really outweighs the bad. I probably won’t die today.

That’s as far as I can get you without religion. But if you accept the thoughts of the afterlife, even death is not the end. Even the scariest I’ll definitely die today becomes something much different: I’ll definitely die today, but I’ll go somewhere much better.

So you see, with the addition of the afterlife, there is always hope. Even in our darkest days, because there’s always infinite potential positive outcomes. More than that, all outcomes are eventually positive.

[Please don’t misconstrue this as some strange way to say that if you kill yourself you’ll go to heaven. Because religious scholars really just aren’t sure about that. Don’t gamble with your soul.]

 

Proving the afterlife

Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It’s the first law of Thermodynamics. And it’s important here. 

What else do you need to know? That the soul exists, and it’s pure energy. We know that your mind and body don’t go anywhere when you die. We can see that. But there is one function of human consciousness that we don’t observe: how fast we’re vibrating. [Yes, you read that right]

So if we can assume that the soul exists, and it is pure energy. Literally a frequency and a magnitude. If your soul is pure energy, and energy cannot be created or destroyed, there is an afterlife. 

And the craziest part of all, is that we control the speed that we vibrate. The more stress you put on the human body, the faster it vibrates and the faster it ages. You have a unique frequency, and a unique amplitude, and it’s made up of the stresses that have made you who you are.
